Sometimes you'll get an email, but not always. Usually from the department manager, but as he's away for three weeks you probably won't get an email reply just at the moment.

Thanks so much for the template. I used www.freefax.com to send in my request today. Hoping for some pixie dust for my daughter's surprise trip. If not we will be alright. We have a river view booked, hopefully we will get one. And the most important thing just 5 more days until we are at POR my favorite resort!!

Can't wait!

Stephanie

One thing to consider when requesting the corner rooms is getting a room with the extra window. We stayed at POFQ last year and requested and got the corner room without any problems. However, while we were there, we noticed that there were rooms on the corners with extra windows in them, and getting one of those would have been even better. Just something to consider when making your requests.

So we arrive in 12 days!!!! We don't really have any room requests except that we NEED connecting rooms. They said they are "guaranteed" because we have 2 adults and 8 children but should I fax just in case? I have read some horror stories about people who needed them not getting them. Anything else you would suggest?

You are correct that a room with only unaccompanied minors staying in it should guarantee you a connecting room, yes.

However you can only have two rooms connecting, you do know that don't you? Not sure how you're going to fit ten people into two rooms (unless two of them are under 3 years old, or is this is a POR booking?). It's going to be fun anyway!

Yes we are booked at POR. They have one room under me and one under my husband as they won't allow you to book a room with unaccompanied minors (ruling out three room options anywhere and limiting us to por or some if the deluxes). Theoretically we could split up but that would really make things difficult for us (some if the kids have special needs) and not much of a vacation. We will be happy with whatever we get as long as there are connecting rooms!!!

Are you saying that some of the corner rooms DO NOT have the double windows? I guess I just assumed all the corner ones would?

Nope, we requested corner... Got and inside corner, inside stairs area.... One window ....

So all corners don't necessarily have 2 windows !!

Well I don't know about most people but I personally don't want to have people coming down a stair looking in my room as they continue.
